Night Runners

Disney Marathoners pounding away the miles at a desserted Walt Disney World. I spot them as we speed by in the monorail. A quick but difficult shot, hardly any light, lots of movement, but I managed to keep it steady enough to make the shot half intesting. This is merely the beginning of their journey, as well as mine.

Main St. USA – Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World.

I shot this during my friends 2nd shot at running the WDW Marathon. That year, he did the Goofy Challenge. Half

Marathon on day 1, and a Full Marathon on Day 2. Physically taxing, yes, but super motivational, and definitely a feat to feel good about once completed. One of the advantages of being a spectator and a photographer to boot, is the uninterrupted chances of taking long exposures such as this, with out being bumped or someone walking in front your shot. Again the K20D’s in body Shake Reduction system shines, and coupled with a very wide angle lens, a slower shutter speed can be used without the need for a tri-pod.
